Mwanamkasi, 42, is a married woman and mother of five children. She has been involved in a food vending business making and selling dumplings. She sells her dumplings door to door to her neighbors. She is a well-known person in the village due to her quality products and her kindness. Mwanamkasi says that her business needs a lot of devotion and determination. At times, she walks to the neighboring villages to sell her products. She wants to buy ingredients but she does not have working capital. This is why she asked Yehu for a loan to buy wheat flour, cooking oil, and baking powder. She has faith that she will one day run a hotel.
